Thanks, Rich. Your hull looks great! In addition to the fender rub marks that I wish to "rub out", I have another small area that a PO had repaired. And the paint used was a shade or two darker. ...

Thanks, Rich, for your comment.

I do not believe my hull has a clearcoat over the paint since the red rubbed onto my white naked fenders. I'd think a clearcoat would have prevented that colour...

Thanks boatpoker. By my described solution, do you think I've acted prudently, all things considered? Anything else I could do to reduce the risk of damage?

Yes, I recall you saying that you store yours in a barn on a farm, and have for quite some time. My boat has always been inside heated, since new, I'm told. And I stored last winter inside heated...

I also jammed a block between the anti-fouling and the tie-lines, and between the lines and swim platform edge to prevent chafing in the wind.

SHrink-Wrapped Mainship

Thanks for the advice, Steve.



I instructed the shrink-wrapper to stop the plastic just below the rub rail. But to secure it, he had to cover up some painted hull beneath the pulpit. And to...

No, Oscar, he wouldn't guarantee anything. And this guy apparently does about 90% of the local wrapping. Judging by the number of wraps with his company name on them, he could be right. Thus, I've...

I do not plan to power-buff the hull. As you said, Awlgrip advises against such practice. But hopefully, a hand-buffing will remove the numerous bumper marks, along with a long white line from the...
